Lunin’s days at Real Madrid are numbered. Ancelotti asked to sign a new goalkeeper
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti asked the club’s board to find a replacement for the Ukrainian Andrey Lunin as the team’s second goalkeeper. The Madrid-based coaching staff are keeping an eye on several goalkeepers to strengthen themselves during the summer off-season. The board of the club believes that a minimum of funds will be spent on this position.
At Real Madrid, opinion is divided between those who believe a new substitute goalkeeper is needed and those who feel Lunin is more than qualified to fill the position. The coaching staff, led by Ancelotti, has been trying to convince the board for several months that replacing the second goalkeeper is a forced move. For this reason, the staff and sports management are already looking at several candidates.
Carlo Anchelotti asked the club to replace the second goalkeeper for the next season, informs Relevo. As the season progressed, his confidence in Lunin waned, and since last summer he’s been exploring various candidates such as David Ospina or Gabriel Slonina. Then Carlo was convinced to leave Lunin in Madrid and not spend money on a new goalkeeper. But the performances of the Ukrainian at the moment when the main keeper Thibault Courtois was injured did not help the Ukrainian to prove his necessity to the coach, but on the contrary, exacerbated doubts about his figure.
Throughout the season, the coaching staff monitors several goalkeepers. On the list above everyone else is Brighton’s Robert Sanchez. In addition, three more La Liga goalkeepers are closely watched: David Soria from Getafe, Paulo Gassaniga from Girona (on loan from Fulham) and Yassin Bunu from Sevilla.
In the coming weeks, when the season officially comes to an end and the club fully begins to form the squad for next year, this dilemma will be resolved. At the moment, everything depends on what Andrei Lunin himself decides. If he stays, it won’t undermine Ancelotti’s intentions to sign a new goalkeeper. The situation between the Ukrainian and the coaching staff at the moment seems insoluble.
